    I think it partly depends what you want to export it to. You can for instance import a Media Pro catalog directly into a Capture One catalog - you may or may not want to of course.

    Thanks for the thought, but the only way to export a media pro catalog into capture one is if you have access and I also assume the original path to the original source images; I have 35,000 images in my media pro catalog and refresh my external hard drives on a routine basis; thus, pragmatically, there is NOT a method to migrate media pro data into capture one.

    Anyone else with a solution???

    So are you saying that your MP catalog includes items to which the catalog doesn't have an up to date link?

    In regards to the last question, yes, I have a media pro catalog that probably no longer has the correct path back to the original image for the reasons mentioned in the original post. I did contact Phase One and the recommended a procedure by which I "reset image path" (or something like that)... which didn't work.

    From what everything I read, this is likely a dead end, which is crazy because Media Pro is owned by Phase One, they want people to migrate to Capture One, but they do not have a workable method to make this actually happen. What is wrong with the thinking at Phase One? Just a rhetorical question...

    Surely for any catalog app you use instead of Media Pro, you are going to need access to the original images? In my experience the Reset Folder Path... feature works. Obviously the media on which the images are now located need to be connected to the computer. If a folder has the [color=#FF0000:2nc5xjkk]?[/color:2nc5xjkk] symbol on it in the Media Pro Catalog Folders section, I can just right click on it, choose Reset Folder Path, and navigate to the new location of that folder.

    You have to to reset folder paths that are missing. Right click, choose Reset Folder Path... and then navigate to the folder where the images are now located:

    Best practice is to do all your media management (renaming, moving, etc,) in the catalog application so it knows where the images are. That said, Media Pro on Mac is the only application I know that can see if you move files in the Finder and reset them automatically. Just don't do it!
